Brilliant Little Lunch Tips
It may be summer, but it’s back-to-school season already here at the offices of Parents—we’re busy putting the finishing touches on our big September issue so it’ll be ready for you to read in mid-August. The other day, I read our fabulous article about packing fun lunches for kids, which included all sorts of why-didn’t-I-think-of-that tricks that I’ve already started using since my daughter is going to a day camp at her preschool this summer and has to bring lunch with her for the first time. Here’s my favorite tip: *Make a small cut in the stem of a banana so it’s ready to open (and do the same for easy-peel clementines). Yesterday, Jane opened her banana without help from the teacher! *For granola and snack bars, make a tiny snip on one end of the wrapper so it’s simple to tear. I also cut the end off the tough-to-open cellophane wrapper on the straw of Jane’s OJ juice box. *If the jelly on your child’s PB&J sandwich turns the bread soggy, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on both pieces of bread to act as a barrier.
